* In ''Series/LoisAndClark'', Lois feels weird after coming home one day. A new neighbor, who is a trained hypnotist, helps her recover the memories, and she realizes that she was the subject of a typical alien abduction. When she confides in Clark, he expresses disbelief, even after she points out that he's an alien himself. However, it's eventually revealed that the memory was implanted by the episode's bad guy, who triggers a post-hypnotic suggestion in Lois several times in order to distract Superman, while the bad guy's people get away with some crime.
